As I learn more grappling technique, I was just taught how to escape the triangle. Here's the best explanation I can give. Once you are in the hold, bend the trapped arm so you dig your elbow right in to your opponent's sternum and really lean in to it. One this is done, your opponent should be stunned enough so you can sit down and place both feet under their arm pits and push so you are completely out of the hold. Obviously you have to do this quickly before you head off in to La La land, but it can be done. My question to you is this...have any of you learned this method before? and how legal is it in MMA?? It's not a striking maneuver with the tip of your elbow, so I am assuming that it would be, but please correct me if I am wrong. Lookin forward to your answers.
